MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” did an extensive series of segments today on gun control, with Vice President Joe Biden the star attraction. As a roundtable chat wrapped up, host Joe Scarborough thanked Biden for his presence on the program. Biden returned the appreciation, and then some:
BIDEN: Joe, thank you.
BIDEN: No, no, no, no, no: You have changed the debate in America. You. You have changed — the two guys that deserve, if anything gets done, an award here are you and Michael Bloomberg.
SCARBOROUGH: I don’t know that that’s going to help me in a future Republican primary, but thank you so much.
BIDEN: And it probably won’t help him either … It won’t help either one of you, but I think you’re great guys.
Somewhere CNN’s Piers Morgan, he of many shouting segments on gun control, is feeling a bit left out.
